Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Do you have anything else you could try plugging in to see if the ports are powered, digital camera or anything? 

 

My bet would be old computer with the old 1.0 USB ports.

FWIW...I have an old (5+ years) laptop, with USB 1.0 ports, and it and the nook like each other a lot...

Eh, I took a shot. I'm not a super techie person but I do learn fast when I have to. I had an old laptop with those older ports (1.0) and couldn't ever get it to play nice with a digital camera I had. It was frustrating but at that time we had 2 working laptops plus an old desktop so I could just plug it in to a different computer.
